Having trouble with sound not playing properly (sounding garbled or staticy) or have no sound at all when using wine? There are two solutions which should resolve this issue for you quickly.
The first is using winetricks to change your sound driver to ASLA rather than using the default pulse audio drivers.
Another way to resolve this sound issue is to install ia32-libs and ia32-libs-multiarch through synaptic package manager. These two packages will also update a number of packages relating to pulse sound. Once you have installed these packages you will need to reboot to load the new libraries. It is important that you reboot and not just log out. Logging out will not load the updated libraries.
Once rebooted your sound should be working properly in wine.
